I assume they pick the best. That's the benefit of "having been there." Hairdressers, dentists, and masseuses have logged hours in their respective fields. They know tricks of the trade, inside scoop, and who's who in the industry. They employ the best to do their work, because they know the best will deliver in a way others can't.
So who is best qualified to fill the mailboxes of people who shine?
People who shine for a living. You - the people who, day in and day out, work your corner of the world, slowly and steadily making it a brighter place to be.
Week #2 of the Yellow Envelope Project. Quick review for those of you just tuning in.
Spread the word... Shining is in! Each week I post the address of someone who, for whatever reason - big or small - shines. Reasons can be as big as solving world peace or as small as sharing a smile at just the right time.
YOUR job is to help perpetuate this culture of excellence by sending a short note - snail mail. The note will inform this week's recipient you got word of his accomplishment and that you think what he did was worth celebrating. That's almost it. Short, sweet, and to the point.
I say "almost," because there is one more detail. Your note must be sent in a yellow envelope and the return address should read, "Yellow Envelope Project" (yellow envelopes available at Kinkos and most office supply stores).
That's it. Short note. $.44 cent stamp. Yellow envelope. Postmarked within the week.
This week we recognize a woman passionate about her work. She is a teacher on a mission to help women understand complex nursing concepts surrounding birth. She takes tough topics such as the interplay of hormones and gets you up and rocking to CCR favs with new words. She's always got a listening ear and shoulder to lean on. She empowers women by traveling the country sharing useful information about labor and parenting.Take a second to applaud the passion and creativity this woman uses to engage her students in learning!
